Martigues motorway viaduct

Historic site and monument, Engineering structure, Bridge, Town of Art & History, 20th C in Martigues
  • The motorway viaduct allows the A55 to cross the Caronte canal. It is a complex work built from 1968 and put into service in August 1972.

  • With a total length of 874 meters and a height of 45 meters, it has two distinct parts in their design: metal main structure on the canal and two access viaducts composed of two twin concrete works. It comprises a total of 16 spans supported by 13 piles of reinforced concrete and two metal crutches.
    The structure meets the constraints of departure: integration into the landscape thanks to its fine and elegant profile, clearance of a sufficient waterway and taking into account the seismic risk.
